"start 'em young." A common phrase among older generations of Martial Artists and athletes. Here at Buctown, we too subscribe to that philosophy. Kids of every age and socio-economic background deserve a chance to receive the benefits of a Martial Arts education, and we want to deliver on that promise.

Our 501(c)3 Nonprofit Organization provides free Martial Arts and Meditation classes to students ages 6-18. Our mission is to change lives through the education and practice of martial arts, including Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, Wrestling, MMA, and Meditation. Martial Arts training can play a powerful role in youth development and acts as a catalyst for true personal growth in body, mind, and spirit.

Unfortunately, not every child has the means to attend classes – an inequality we are dedicated to providing a solution for within our community. Your support will help advance our program to give more kids access to the benefits of Martial Arts classes. ​


Your thoughtful funding will be immediately applied towards:

Kids Gym Memberships, Athletic Development & Education, Competition & Tournament Fees, Camps & Clinics, Private Training, Coaches & Staff, Equipment & Uniforms, Travel & Lodging.

  a note from coach jay 

I’m Jay Isip, retired pro-MMA fighter and now owner and founder of Buctown MMA. Thank you for visiting this page to learn how you can sponsor our students & athletes who are eager to learn, train, and compete in martial arts. Our school fosters a culture of discipline, respect, confidence, accountability, and an overall healthy lifestyle. We believe that the study of martial arts can truly change lives and set young people on a better path for their future. That’s why we give so much of our time and talent to our students, but we can’t do it without your support. If you’re here, you probably already understand the value that an education in martial arts provides to our youth. I humbly encourage you to grab an NFT or give what you can, so we can change even more lives and help the children and young adults in our community grow into strong, confident, healthy individuals.

Martial Arts training will give the next generation a solid foundation on which to face their challenges with patience, respect, determination, and humility. It also instills...

Mind-Body Awareness

Martial Arts students learn to focus their mental and physical energy toward a single task. This creates harmony and alignment between the brain, the bones, and the muscles as they work together.

athlete scholarship program

Our Athlete Scholarship Program was created to meet the needs of individuals who wish to pursue an athletic career beyond scholastic sports or to help prep them for their collegiate careers. There is a long list of sports and programs that are not supported or subsidized by the government and our education system. The Buctown Scholarship Program will give dedicated athletes who don’t receive financial support elsewhere an equal opportunity to continue training.


Through an innovative NFT project, we're changing the narrative. We are making an investment in those who invest their talents into improved skillsets, support for the community, and training for our youth – so they can continue to do what they love. Our ask is that you invest in them too.


Off-season and post-graduate athletes rarely have the time or money to spend honing their craft, juggling many priorities just to stay afloat. They clock long hours at school or work leaving less time to focus on their athletic careers. This program sponsors those young adult athletes- buying them the time they need to fulfill their responsibilities while they work toward becoming stronger, faster, and better at their sport of choice and at the next level.

Your generous sponsorship of an

aspiring athlete will fund:


  • Competition Training

  • College Tuition

  • Camps & Clinics

  • Medical Evaluations

  • Gym Membership

  • Recovery Treatments

  • Traveling, Lodging & Meals

  • Commuter Costs

  • Competition & Tournaments

  • Private Lessons

  • Competition Prizes 

This ain’t no free ride though! Athletes in our scholarship program have responsibilities and will be giving back to the community with time and sweat equity. Sponsorship comes with the following weekly commitments:


Training & Practice (10-20 hours)

Coaching Younger Students (5-10 hours)

Community Volunteering (5-10 hours)
